    These are great, especially the first and last. I'm a bit envious of your 5x8. It's too bad that format is no longer a common one, but I guess it's easy enough to cut down 8x10 film.

    Re: In Praise of 5x7... Post'em !

    hi guys!

    i'm very inspired by this thread.. i just started LF photography a few months ago. had bought my first one here. after a long wait and time for reading and researching (o'm still doing it) i decided to get an old Ansco 5x7 with a magic lantern lens. a very nice format and i think newbies like me would love it too!

    still have a few film to develop and scan. have had a few successful exposures and developed films and still learning the ropes.. had tried contact printing on 5x7 as well. not yet 100%t successful but hopefully very soon!

    here are a few half succesfull exposures and developments that i made. some minor brightness and contrast on photoshop but never tried to clean it :P

    Efke 25 souped in parodinal (by my friend Zorkikat)

    thank you guys!

    Yup, give me my MQC 5x7, some FP4 or T400 and I'm a very happy camper!

    Well, a beautiful model in the rainforest helps too.

    Thank you for your kind words, turns out cutting down the 8x10 film is not too hard and I am finding the aspect ratio works very well for me.

    Hi Ken:

    My camera is a Chamonix and I have 8 holders that came with it, it is wonderful to use and very well made I must say.

    Thanks Allen and Jim. Those clouds were quite dramatic in real life.
